So I read the first book and enjoyed it just fun. It was a light read and it was fun enough. I decided to cut it some slack considering it was so cheap whoever the second book I am not as thrilled with.
The main thing I so very much dislike is that the author forces two characters to be together and it based purely on superficial things. I like how the character gets upset that others are creeps when she herself is as shallow herself.
The second thing is how fast is this supposed to go on for? If I understood the story right the first book took place in about a week. So in a week she went from working a normal job to becoming a princess? In the first book she was written as the person who came from normal humans and not knowing how to act or talk in this new kingdom. In a week she says "dear one" to the maid. Who talks like that?? Who says "little one" to her younger sister while all the while hoping she will end up with Azrael?
In a week she went from hating someone to thinking that she loves someone. I can enjoy these light reads just fine and I like having them as fillers while I wait for my main authors to release new books but this one was just to full of clichés and cringey writing.
It could have worked if there was a sense of irony or self-awareness but I can't read that in the book. To be honest I got 33 % into the book and I read that awful line when she says "Never apologize for showing your feelings, dear one". It is just so weird for her to say it. It does not fit the character. I realize I am ranting but this is such a pet peeve of mine.
I am giving it two starts because of the first book and that it sold at a fair price. There are other books with a similar premise that does it better I feel. I might finish this book one day but right now I just annoyed seeing it in my library.
